Watch this video featuring HelloWallet’s behavioral scientist, Sarah Newcomb, if you are not sure how to start working on your financial goals or have a big goal to accomplish.

Don’t have time to watch the full video? Read our quick video recap:
  • Set a long-term goal and break it down into achievable pieces that you can start working on now.
  • Be honest with yourself about your current financial habits when you set a goal.
  • Once you’ve chosen a goal, the way you think about it makes all the difference. Add detail, clarity, and emotion to your mental picture of the goal to make it feel more real.
  • A goal is not always something we want to get. Due to a fundamental difference in our personalities, some people set their goals to approach a positive outcome, while others set their goals to avoid a negative outcome.
